1882 II/9 William Hill & Son (Op. 1819)

Historical restoration 2019

The organ in Little Malvern Priory is one of the many musical gems of Worcestershire.

Prior to restoration, it had a quiet 137-year life, spent entirely in its prominent west end gallery position in a beautiful former Benedictine Priory in a particularly peaceful and attractive corner at the foot of the Malvern hills.

The organ was built by the esteemed London firm of William Hill & Son in 1882 (Op. 1819) and enjoys an unusually favourable and unencumbered position in a west end gallery. It was opened on Thursday 10 August 1882 in a day of joyful music-making.

In January 2019, we commenced a thorough historical restoration of the instrument, the first in its long and peaceful life.

The work was completed in June 2019.
